      Aww, thanks. Well, as long as they don't burn my house down I'll keep going and make 17 more!

        Sarah, when I get home I will take a close up pic of the clear label thing. I only have to make 24 since that's how many tables I will have but I cannot imagine trying to print on tissue paper.

          Well Tammy, apparently they have great quality candles at Target (note to self for the future). However in this instance I'm really wishing it wasn't such a great candle. I burned the darn thing all afternoon and evening yesterday and it's nowhere near the tissue paper. So, I lit it again this morning. Somehow I think this is going to take a few days until we know the answer.

            LOL, well how is it burning? Meaning is just the inside of the candle burning down but keeping the side walls or is the side walls burning down with it?

              So far it's just burning down the inside. That's what I'm most interested in...HOW it burns. If it burns like that I'm totally doing them. Then there's no way it will catch on fire. Especially since I couldn't get it to burn yesterday even when I tried!

                  Sarah,
                  I'm interested to hear how your candle burning went. I think your tissue idea would work better than a label which will melt if/when it gets to that point.

                  So you tape the tissue (1 ply?) to a piece of paper and print.

                  That would be great if it only burns inside and then your image should glow like a luminary.

                    Well Angela, I'm on day 3 of burning this darn candle. It's burned down the middle about halfway down the candle. It looks awesome in the dark- totally like a luminaria. Now I think I want to make huge ones to use as my centerpieces...
                    I'll update again when the candle burns to a more satisfactory level for me to determine that it won't burn people's houses down!
